Black Death Mask - Dark Silver


 

This fantastical steampunk styled mask is modeled on the Black Death Mask that doctors used to wear during the 17th century black plague.

At that time, the doctor’s mask had glass openings for the eyes and a curved beak shaped like that of a bird.

Straps held the beak in front of the doctor's nose.

The mask had two small nose holes and was a type of respirator which contained aromatic items.

The beak could hold dried flowers (including roses and carnations), herbs (including mint), spices, camphor, or a vinegar sponge.

The purpose of the mask was to keep away bad smells, which were thought to be the principal cause of the disease in the miasma theory of infection, before it was disproved by germ theory.

Doctors believed the herbs would counter the "evil" smells of the plague and prevent them from becoming infected.
